Description

Biliary disorder NOS (not otherwise specified) is a broad term used to describe any disorder of the biliary system that does not fit into a specific diagnosis. The biliary system is made up of the gallbladder, bile ducts, and the liver, and is responsible for the production, storage, and release of bile, which helps to digest fats and absorb fat-soluble vitamins. Biliary disorders can range from mild to severe and can be caused by a variety of factors, including infection, inflammation, obstruction, or malformation of the biliary system. Symptoms of biliary disorders can include abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, jaundice, and dark urine. Treatment for biliary disorders depends on the underlying cause and may include medications, lifestyle changes, or surgery.
